There Are Over 45 Murals Downtown

Many downtown areas across North America explain the historical significance of certain places through plaques, but Moose Jaw is different. It features more than 45 murals throughout the downtown core, and all of them depict parts of Moose Jaw’s history. For example, you could see one that shows what Main Street was like in the 1920s or marvel at a scene inside the Moose Jaw Union Hospital.

It Has an Intersection of Impressive Historical Merit

Unlike some places that tear down old buildings, Moose Jaw’s representatives keep using historical buildings when possible. An intersection that contains the first post office, built in 1911, is also home to the Bank of Nova Scotia, which was originally the Bank of Montreal and also erected in 1911. The intersection is also home to the Hammond Building, which was built in 1912, and Clothes Encounter, established in 1918. This is one of the few intersections where there are historical buildings on all four corners which are still in use.
